Niño Santo
“Niño Santo” is based on the legend of Niño Fidencio, one of the most famous healers in Mexico, whose fame started to spread in the 1920’s in spite of the Catholic Church’s reluctance to acknowledge his abilities.
It all started with a deadly epidemic that affected the southern part of Mexico. Political and health authorities sent a group of three young doctors to vaccinate all the people in the zone and teach them preventive sanitary habits. However, on their way there, the three passed through a town called Aguazul, where villagers mysteriously resisted their visit. Even the town doctor warned them not to try to vaccinate the local people, but the doctors didn’t listen.  That was the start of the journey that would take them to what ultimately became the last town they’d visit.
As the doctors go deeper into the mystery of Aguazul, strange things begin to happen.  In the name of science, they observe great miracles that are completely beyond reality, and all related to the famous Niño, who confronts their rigid scientific arguments with the possibilities of faith.
Niño Santo” is comprised of six episdoes and stars Gabino Rodríguez as El niño, Karla Souza as Lucia, José María de Tavira as Damián, Francisco de la Reguera as Fraca, Harold Torres as Mateo, Gerardo Taracena as Santiago and Noé Hernández as Silvino.
